Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum: 432


DELPHI HONOURS NIKODROMOS OF CHALKIS

Greek text:   FD_3.2.207
Date:     c. 265/4 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

This inscription is accompanied by a representation of a lyre, and another inscription from the same period refers to a flute-player called Nikodromos, who may be the same man - in which case he was clearly a versatile musician. For the details, see P.Ceccarelli, "Circular choruses and the dithyramb in the Hellenistic period a problem of definition", page 168 ( academia.edu ).


Gods. The Delphians have granted to Nikodromos of Chalkis, the son of Theodoros, both to himself and to his descendants: proxeny, priority in access to the oracle, privileged seating at games, priority in receiving justice, inviolability, freedom from all taxes, and the other rights that have been granted to other proxenoi and benefactors. When the archon was Archelas, and the members of the council were Eucharidas, Deinon, Timogenes, Agetor and Eupolis.
